For those who enjoy fishing, Howe Lake is a great place to cast out a line for Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, and Panfish.
2. Popple Lake
Located in Jim Falls, WI, the beautiful Popple Lake is a paddler’s paradise. Popple Lake is a 94-acre lake filled with Largemouth Bass, Northern Pike, Panfish, and Walleye which make for a great place to spend the day fishing. Popple Lake is a small and quiet lake which means it takes just a few hours to paddle around in either a kayak or canoe.
3. Glen Loch Lake
Glen Loch Lake is the perfect place to spend the day kayaking and canoeing! Glen Loch Lake can be accessed through Erikson Park in Chippewa Falls, WI. Erikson Park has a beautiful boat ramp and handicap-accessible docks with a kayak launch. This allows everyone to enjoy all Glen Loch has to offer.
